They may renew the copyrights just to upset your plans. Wait... can copyrights be renewed in UK and Austrailia?

I think, technically it's a broadcast law. The law being that it is only protected for 50 years, and after that can't be protected. However, stranger things have happened.

I see there being "Official Releases" and then the "PD releases"

Sounds about right. Here in the U.S., a work can be protected indefinitely as long as the copyright holders renew in a timely manner, from what I've come to understand.
